So I just got my first big boy job and I am going to need a more reliable vehicle for the commute. I have resisted selling my 1990 Miata for a while but I think now is the time. I am asking $1,250 for a GRMer looking for Challenge glory.  Shoot me an email at at g m a i




The body is relatively straight.

Everyone knows red cars are faster.

The interior is in good shape.

FM Front swaybar 

Has had a later long nose crank engine swaped in at some point because it has the 8-slot crank pully. 

Raceland Header and Magnaflow cat

No body rust, the car spent a majority of its life in Mississippi. 

Recent timing belt, waterpump, heater core, radiator, and top

JDM fender "wink" indicators 

Neat IFRA steering wheel and Momo hub



One of the PO's really did a number on the frame rails. 

Paint presents well in photos but it is definately a 10-20 footer. 

168,xxx miles 

Cheap coilovers

Handbrake sticks 



The rear main seal leaks.

I have noticed a slight crank pulley weeble wobble recently. 

Elusive coolant leak

In reply to Patrick (Forum Supporter) :

I sold the WRX a few weeks ago to pay for half my major roof repair, so I'm down to the Abarth and Crosstrek.  I've wanted a cheap fun Miata for awhile now, and could probably scrape up a grand or so.  I've seen much worse for much more.

Go Jerry.

My 17 year old and I were talking Civics and she told me I shouldn't have listened to Mom and I should've found her a stick shift car rather than the automatic that she bought.  

Maybe a cheap car to learn stick on.  

Go Jerry.

Put me third in line if Jerry and Datsun310Guy pass.

I’ll put my name in line too after Indy Guy. My wife says a Miata would be fun to have and it would make a lot more sense for the challenge than my other ideas.

I was busy doing other things today and wasn't on the forum.  Saw this post and cursed the heavens.

Then I showed it to Tiger Mom and she gave me a pitying  look and said "what exactly would you do with ANOTHER Miata?
